Having a loyal furry friend in the household surely ensures a fantastic amount of love from the dog to the owner and vice versa, in a real man’s best friend way. Understanding your dog might be easy, and it isn’t difficult to understand your dog wants to give you kisses and love.
However, pups might also behave more subtly.
You have to admit that our best friends have many strange behaviors such as licking everything and anything, freaking out at the sound of vacuum(even though your furry friend saw the vacuum a million times), etc.
The bad news is that not everyone is good at talking to our pets as Dr.Doolittle. But the good news is that below you will see 12 signs your pup makes and what is your best friend trying to tell you.
1. Licking Your Face or Body
Some people love this, other find it gross, but the reality is that all dogs want to do that to their owners once a while.
You should know that this is a submissive behavior and it is good for your dog since it helps them ease stress. Last but not least is a sign of love.
2. Cuddling After Having Dinner
It is not a good idea to interrupt your dog while they are having their meal since often dogs are keen when it comes to their food. However, cuddling with you after their dinner shows that they are really comfortable around you.
3. Following You Around Even In the Bathroom
As a part of your family pack, your best friend needs to be with you all the time. Your pup might feel vulnerable when you aren’t around. So, a dog which follows your every single step isn’t always best, but you must admit that it is adorable.
Vets say that this kind of following behavior happens since it is the instinct of the dog always to do things with their family, that is you.
Isn’t this lovely? So, you should bear in mind that furry friends are communal animals which run in packs. Therefore, they are used to doing things in groups.
Their instincts take them to times of defending their territory and hunting, where all is done in a group. So for a “vulnerable” moment such as going to the bathroom, what your dog wants to do is protect you.
Also, another reason why your dog might follow you is that they are curious.
Why are you doing in that secret room? Why do you need to close the door, what are you doing in there?
Remember one thing, to your dog the bathroom is part of their territory that is the whole house. For your dog, to not be allowed to patrol their territory is stressful.
Also, one more reason why your dog comes with you in the bathroom is since they missed you. Maybe you just came back from the store, or you were gone at work the whole day, either way for your dog it has been too long.
